Beautiful villa set in a quiet village
After staying in private rentals for many years, this villa has proved to be the best. It is spacious and everything you possibly need is provided and the pool was spotless and carefully cleaned and maintained. The villa is set in the hills above the town of Paphos away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area and is above the level of humidity so benefits from a refreshing cool breeze and fantastic views. The air-conditioning is on a two-hour timer limit which is easily reset by the push of a button but we rarely used it even in temperatures of 35c because of the excellent fans and cool evenings. The owners are very helpful and respond very quickly to any requests or concerns and provide very detailed instructions to get to the villa from the airport. We also enjoyed meeting the resident cat who likes to pop by for a few biscuits and some affection. We had an excellent holiday and will definitely come back.
Thank you for your fantastic review, we are so glad that you and your family had a wonderful holiday at our Villa. you are welcome back at anytime. As for the cat , nicknamed (Smudge), made an appearance back in April, since then ,all guests that have stayed, have fed and watered him daily, he obviously knows where he wants to be.
villa with great views 5/5
Lovely location, fabulous views and sunsets. Very peaceful setting. Eating in easy as well equipped with plenty of crockery etc., unlike some places. Clean and very spacious with good choice of areas around garden, balconies and roof to chill out. Vivian was an excellent advisor and kept us updated prior to travel. Pictures with land marks and clear instructions from airport were sent which made our drive nice and easy. From first enquiry to arrival back home was followed up promptly. Roads were quiet with spectacular scenery. Beautiful monastery few mins dive.

A little piece of heaven
As it was my fiftyith birthday, we were looking for something a little bit special, we have been coming to Cyprus for nearly 20 year's, mostly to the south of the island ,after much searching we came across villa callista, nestled in the hills in the village of tala 7km outside of paphos, we contacted the owners who were most helpful indeed their sincerety and kindness made our minds up,we viewed the pictures of the villa and it was amazing, so we were on our way, we were given directions by the owners which brought us directly to the front door, from the outside it looked fantastic, but were we in for a surprise, when we entered we were met with one of thee most beautiful homes we have ever seen, even with a sandstorm the previous day the villa was spotless, beautiful furniture not the usual holiday tat superbly presented with every conceivable luxury that you could desire and we hadn't even went upstairs, excellent quality beds and bedding and again the attention to detail was fantastic, so now to the outside, again we were blown away a fantastic sized pool spotless again and three different seating areas, the villa consisted of 3 levels 1,the pool level giving spectacular views of paphos below the second level giving 180dgs of fantastic night sky's a stargazing paradise much to our delight and finally a roof top terrace which we enjoyed the fantastic sunsets the could behold, this by far is a piece of heaven on earth it was a pleasure to be there for my fiftyith and I hope it will be my 51st as well.truly the owners have put there heart and soul into this magical place, and it shows everything that you require has been thought of even car hire was recommended and goerge at easy car rentals was outstanding, anybody reading this I recommend try it and see you won't be disappointed I hope to be back soon gary and michaela, belfast
